Re: Head shot anyone???
I just became a huge fan of the rear head shot this year. My nephew shot a doe in the back of the head from 185 yards this last season and it couldnt have been a better choice. The 2 does were laying "decoy" motionless with their heads up for at least 5 minutes while my nephew and bro put the stalk on them from the back side of the hill. Nephew rested the .243 on a large rock he was standing behind. He is zeroed at 200 so no hold overs. He picked the big one which from his point of view was looking straight away from him. From my point of view and distance I was looking from the deers 4 o'clock at about 400 yards. The deers head "sneezed", the head dropped to the ground, then I heard the shot. It was the biggest doe of the year. Her little buddy watched her twitch a bit then nervously, but not frantically, trotted away.
GRAVITY. It's not just a good idea. It's the LAW!
